from the video game industry today. >>> the last time president obama and afghan president ahmad karzai spoke face-to-face was about four months ago via video conference after a week when the white house suggested it's considering a zero option in it afghanistan when it comes to troops post 2014, floating the possibility of withdrawal or bust as a negotiating tactic. we'll be watching what the president and karzai say in public at their press conference this afternoon. karzai, who met yesterday with defense secretary leon panetta at the pentagon with secretary of state hillary clinton, has different expectations. perhaps as many as 15,000 troops staying, which he hinted at in comments yesterday. >> can assure you, mr. secretary, that afghanistan -- with the help that you provide, be able to provide to people and to protect. >> and protect karzai. karzai added, that help is needed, quote, so afghanistan will never again be threatened by terrorists from across our borders, suggesting he understands the u.s. priorities there. the white house considers plans that range from roughly 3,000 to
